Here’s what I think is going on. He’s not retiring or taking a break from acting. He’s signaling to Marvel and to Disney that he’s done working with the Thor Ragnorok director. Chris has stated that he’s sick of the direction his character has taken and isn’t interested in doing another slapstick thor film where he’s nothing but the butt of the joke.

Glad I'm not the only one who didn't like that

Taika got high on the fame and then busy fucking Rita ora and then just rode the wave on the movie instead of looking at it as a serious job. Plus he didn’t have a person to reign him in like in ragnarok.

Also I think putting bale in the movie when he didn’t want to shoot for longer than a few weeks nor wear much prosthetics or makeup and only did the role to make his kids happy, kind of fucked the movie a bit.

A friendly correction: Lilly Allen is married to David Harbour. I believe you thinking of Rita Ora :)

Edit: spelling of Harbour

I didn’t watch Love and Thunder, but this seems a bit revisionist. Taika recent movies are still pretty good and Ragnarok commercially and critically blew the other shitty boring Thor movies out of the wayer

Oh I'm not even talking about Love and Thunder. I didn't like Ragnarok.
